Sweet Corn Chicken Soup - Chicken and Sweet Corn Soup

Sweet Corn Chicken Soup, this soup is one of my favorite soup and my kids' all time favorite soup. When ever we visit restaurants, the first we order is sweet corn chicken soup. I hope any family who take their kids, order this first :) I just wanted to try this soup at home, so as usual, I browsed on net to get the recipe.


 All the recipes I saw was talking about the chicken stock to be used for this soup. And when I browsed for making chicken stock, there were different methods to prepare the stock. So, I decided to prepare the stock on my own which is really very simple to make at home. I did not add any oil or butter or cream but still the soup came out really really well. My kids just loved it!
